My 5yo recently registered for Kindergarten and the plan was that he would get his last 2 vaccinations (varicella and MMR) at the end of August, well after I have given birth and before school starts in September. Those vaccines are "live" so I just didn't want to risk any break-through diseases in the house while I'm pregnant. Well, I really want him to attend the summer Kindergarten readiness class which is from July 9 to August 9 and the school official said he has to be fully vaccinated to attend the program. Since my due date is June 30 and I have given birth at 41 weeks the last 2 times (which means July 7), I'm just not comfortable vaxing him that soon after the birth. Maybe I'm worrying over nothing, I don't know. What do you all think?
PS: the school said my pediatrician could write a letter - but I'm not sure he would agree with my concern. I'm planning to talk to him this week.
